2013 Analogue Bucket List: Back to Basics

1

I am excited to share my 2013 Analogue Bucket List, as I am new to Lomography and, through Lomography, am making a return to film for the first time in about 15 years. I am excited to explore lo-fi, multiple exposures, and variances in film.

So, I will begin by saying that this bucket list will be different from many others in that being new to Lomography, I have so many things to cross off that list — many of which are very basic.

But, how did I get here? Years ago, I shot with a Minolta (I think it was an X-370), as I was starting to really like photography. I sold that somewhere around 1998. Now, I shoot primarily with a Canon DSLR and a Leica X2. About three weeks ago, I saw the Kickstarter campaign for the Smartphone Film Scanner. I thought it would be really cool to be able to scan my old negatives, so I backed the project at the LC-A+ level.

But, I couldn’t wait until March to start shooting.

Bucket List Item #1: Start shooting immediately.

So, I bought, in one auction, a Diana Mini and a Diana F+ with some accessories. I need some 120 film, but the auction included some 35mm film so I began shooting with the Mini, although I am still on the first roll. I can’t wait to develop and upload.

Bucket List Item #2: Learn to use a rangefinder.

Loved the attic sale and bought the Fed 1 at 40% off. I have some expired B&W film (Kodak 400) I can’t wait to put in it once it comes!

Bucket List Item #3: Find tons of photos on lomography.com that I like.

And then like them. Like this one:

Bucket List Item #4: Bring Cleveland, Ohio to the Lomography scene.

I love my city and am looking forward to having it seen on the Lomography site. Here is a great multiple exposure shot that I saw on the site of the city:

Bucket List Item #5: Learn to use a Splitzer.

It’s on order and I am excited!!

Bucket List Item #6: Make some new friends and share ideas.

I ask that you keep an eye out for my first rolls of film and let me know what you think. I am very excited to go back to the analogue basics in 2013 and am looking to make some friends, from all over, in the process.

Wishing everyone a great 2013!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
